Rick Ishmael claims Matchplay title

Congratulations to Rick Ishmael, who won the Porters Wood Golf Course matchplay final yesterday in blustery conditions. Rick, who posted a best ever gross 32 in the semi-final to defeat Mark Liptrot on the final hole, played his father-in-law Keith Fawcett, who had overcome John Bennett on the first extra hole of their semi-final the previous week.

Rick playing off 6, had 5 shots on keith, and in the end this proved telling. With the match all-square coming down the last Rick holed a solid 5-footer for par and victory by 1 hole.

A pairs matchplay will be running alongside the Autumn league, so if you have not already done so, please sign up now! The Autumn league started in terrific style last week with Eddie Willis shooting 5 under par to beat an unfortunate Phil Jackson (who also shot -5) on card count-back, courtesy of a par on the last.
